Our bathroom is spotless, the water hot, everything working well. The best part is that we can sit out on the balcony overlooking the Periyar Tiger Preserve and observe the wildlife--waterhens, egrets,...

We traveled from Kabul, looking for a long-term place to rest and have found it. The owners and staff are congenial, helpful and personable. Every request we have made, food-wise, and other has been granted happily. The view over Periyar reserve is a font for bird-watching. The staff are unobtrusive, yet attentive. We still have a couple of weeks to...

A hidden gem in Thekkady national park. We barely paid a penny and had a lovely room overlooking the actual park. Bison, deer and wild pigs can be seen in the park. The staff were really helpful and friendly. The room was fully equipped and very clean. I can't quite believe we found it by luck just wandering down the...

We were two single girls staying for three nights here. This was the worst stay of our entire trip. Tell you why, 1. The property is run by a middle aged couple named Ram n Rani.

Stayed there with my wife for a couple of nights and it was a nice experience. The rooms are very neat and clean with bathroom fitted with modern furnishings that always work. The rooms overlook the forest which makes for a soothing view from the balcony area outside. It's owned by a very accommodating and understanding couple whose 4-5 generations...
